Synopsis
 

ARTISTRY, PASSION AND PHYSICALITY

In 2017, Bangarra presents a brand new contemporary dance work that will leave you astonished by Australia’s history, choreographed by Artistic Director Stephen Page.

Woollarawarre Bennelong was a senior man of the Eora, from the Port Jackson area in Sydney. In a tumultuous time of Australia’s history, Bennelong and his community left us with a legacy that transcended ‘first contact’.

Inspired by true events, this theatrical dance work highlights the extraordinary curiosity and diplomacy that led an Aboriginal community to survive a clash of cultures, contributing to the establishment of positive relationships between the Eora and the British, for a serene future.

This brand new work is Bangarra at its best. In a unique Australian dance language, the company embraces history – celebrating the continuation of life and culture with the power, artistry, passion and physicality of the country’s most acclaimed dancers.
